• SHOWDOWN: Trey Gowdy’s House Panel Demands Hillary Clinton Explain Deleted Emails

    Rep. Trey Gowdy has instructed his Congressional committee probing the terrors attacks in Benghazi to ask Hillary Clinton to come before House investigators for an interview where she will be asked questions about her personal email and the server she used for official business while serving secretary of state.

    Gowdy sent out an official request letter Tuesday to Clinton’s lawyer.

    Gowdy asked for a “transcribed” interview. He also requested that Hillary turn over the infamous server at the heart of this never-ending scandal.

    “This committee is left with no alternative but to request Secretary Clinton appear before this committee for a transcribed interview to better understand decisions the secretary made relevant to the creation, maintenance, retention, and ultimately deletion of public records,” Gowdy wrote in his letter.

    A May 1st deadline has been set.

    “The committee believes a transcribed interview would best protect Secretary Clinton’s privacy, the security of the information queried, and the public’s interest in ensuring this committee has all information needed to accomplish the task set before it,” Gowdy wrote.

    That Hillary would comply with Gowdy’s request may seem like a long shot to some. But I’d argue that appearing before Gowdy’s investigators would help Hillary fix her battered image.

    Hillary’s favorability ratings have taken a beating since this email scandal first emerged.

    Hillary’s overall favorability rating stands at 26%, down from 38% in November according to new CBS News poll data.

    Just 42% of people believe that Hillary Clinton is honest and trustworthy. And on her use of a personal email account and server, 62% said it was inappropriate; 25% said it was appropriate.

    So the best thing she could do is cooperate with Gowdy.

    But she won’t do that. Because she’d have to tell the truth about her private email correspondence. And we all know that the Clintons don’t tell the truth.
